Live Through This is on the Move!

I’ve been doing a lot of behind the scenes work on Live Through This lately, so the blog has been pretty neglected (I’m sorry—I owe you a picture or two of Lorde from her Roseland Ballroom show a couple of weeks ago). Here’s why:

I’ll be in Boston from April 5th through 7th, and I’ll be in Los Angeles from the 9th through the 14th. Between the two cities, I’ll be collecting the stories and portraits of 20 suicide attempt survivors.

Lots happening while I’m in LA! I’ll be at the American Association of Suicidology‘s annual conference, both as a member of the Social Media Team (this is the reason for the memes I’ve been posting on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram lately, if you follow me and were curious) AND as a member of a lived experience panel entitled Can You Hear Me Now? New Voices of Attempt Survivors. This is pretty exciting, because I get to talk to the nation’s top professionals in the mental health field about Live Through This and what it’s been like to work with and connect a community of suicide attempt survivors to one another. Oh, and I should also mention that I’ll be recording an episode of Mental Illness Happy Hour with Paul Gilmartin while I’m there, too.

One more thing before I go: On March 12th, while in the middle of the Most Terrible Stomach Flu to Ever Exist, I told the story of my own suicide attempt and how I moved from pursuing suicide awareness in academia to doing so using art as my vehicle for the Mental Health edition of the Story Collider. Aleksandar Cosic caught the whole thing on video for your viewing pleasure.
